michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st

? it is impressive. >> cost a fortune. [laughter] >> michelle obama -- i thought it was a brilliantly cynical speech, done a marvelously. the theme was that he loves his fe, his children, his family, therefore hehe loves everybody. i by the first three -- i think he is a terrific guy in that way. but the argumenent,t, if it is an gument -- it was all anecdotes' -- is because there is this evanempathy -- thihis is a guy who is extremely ideological and ambitious. he this of himself as world- historical. to pretend ass she did it successfully, that there is nothing of that in him is a marvel. >> "brilliantly y cynical." >> i just cannot belie he is going after the man's wife. i cannot believe he did that. >> because she is a woman? >> would you o offer s similar mments about ann romney's -- >> it was a different speech by different woman. >> did andhe ao talked about her husband, feelings empathy -- >> you say and -- >> the obamassakes, they did nothing right. i ampared to accept that from you charles. therere's nothing they could that would make you happy. maybe they should just die -- >> break it u

, tonight, and michelle obama, what is the big test for michelle obama? we know she's practiced, she's a practiced speaker, she's been on the national stage, unlike ann romney, who hit it out of the park with her first effort, really, using teleprompters and all the attention. what is the tactical political effect of michelle obama? >> i think michelle made her debut four years ago in what was an off the chart speech. i think she, because of her closeness obviously with the president and her viewpoint, she can really tell the story of his values, his upbringing, what he believes, and what he wants to do yet for this country. i think she is going to be a powerful and passionate advocate for the president tonight and will give a great speech. >> unlike mitt romney, who needed to have the biography filled in and ann romney was trying to explain just who is this man who has been described variously as robotic and not warm and cuddly to the outside world, at least, president obama has a very high popularity quotient but his big gap is on answering the republican bumper stickers, which is

the president's address on thursday. we begin with first lady michelle obama. she took at stage a little after 10:30 last night. she remains one of the most pick whuns sheep tweeted a week ago about her husband's character and conviction. >> i love that he has never foregotten how he started. i love that we can trust to do he says when it's gone, especially that for barack. i know that since last night, there is no such thing about us or -- barack never let's himself get distracted. just like his grandmother, he just keeps getting up and moving forward with patience and wisdom and courage and grace. >> the first lady did not mention mitt romney by name but the references were clear as she saw the contrast the president's background with that of his republican challenger. >> for barack obama these issues aren't political, they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he know what it means to want certainly more for your kids and grand kids. barack knows the person dream because he's lived it. and he wants in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity no
. >> as you brought up about the fact there is enthusiasm and michelle obama nailed it last night. a lot of passion from the first lady, all of the speakers a lot of red meat to the base as well. the republicans are saying, not a lot of talk about jobs and the president plan and the fact that he doesn't have one that a lot of people know how he'll create them. is bill clinton going to help make that case tonight? he is the grandest star of the left. >> he do think you'll see a forward looking vision for how we create good paying sustainable jobs for the middle class and restore economic security for the middle class, which you didn't hear in tampa. castro talked about building from the middle class out. from president clinton tonight i think you'll hear the fact we built the economy from the middle class out in 90s and resulted in a government surplus and 23 million jobs. in the decade that followed, we pursued the policies that governor romney and congressman ryan proposed. stripping back oversight from banks and polluters and assuming the market will take care of the rest. the problem

's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them
, tonight is michelle obama's turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince folks that president obama is likable. take a look at this recent poll. this is a "washington post" poll. 61% of registered voters say that the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. we're going to have more ahead, what we can expect from the first lady. >>> also coming up, the spotlight tonight on a rising star in the democratic party. we're talking about san antonio julian castro following in the footsteps of bill clinton and barack obama, hoping he'll appeal to the growing latino population. here's a look at the man and the mission that he's facing. >> it's been my pleasure to serve as mayor. >> reporter: meet julian castro, popular latino mayor of san antonio, texas, and a darling of the democratic base who will deliver the keynote speech at the national convention in charlotte. democrats have a long tradition of rolling out the party's rising stars for such an honor. >> the keynote speech is to set the tone for the entire convention. >> we will have a new president of t
the difference you make in people's lives. >> all right. that was michelle obama last night and we were watching it together and one of the things we were joking about is that she raised the bar when it came to the guns, right? we all -- and we are all going sleeveless now and we have to work on the biceps. >> and seriously, people were talking about that as well, and it is blowing up on twitter. in all seriousness, we did see michelle obama who is comfortable in her own skin and seemed like she was relaxed and really delivered a personal message. and dana, this seems like it is first lady who is growing, and who is evolving here h, a, and don't see hillary clinton, but michelle obama bringing in the women here. >> yes, and you heard her appeal to the women as overtly as ann romney did, because they don't have the gap that the republicans do, but it was fascinating of the way she felt she had to reintroduce the country to the person barack obama, and talking about his rusty old car and the way he asked her out on the date and of course, the kind of father he is. and of course, for the political
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
. michelle obama, second most popular political figure, i bet she is proud of america now. >> i'm crystal ball. our economy is at near historic lows. so will it matter as much this time around? >> i'm steve kornacki here in charlotte where the skies just opened up on us. forget healthcare and the budget. tonight we are getting to the real issue, which candidate is the best looking? >> that is my thoughts on sally fields and clint eastwood. it is september 4th and you're in the cycle. >>> dnc kicks off tonight in charlotte and the crowds are starting it file in. 35,000 delegates media and fans are expected to be there no rub elbows and give speeches. tonight, mayor villaraigosa, rahm emmanuel, harry reid, jimmy carter and lilly ledbetter. all leading up to keynote speaker julian castro and headliner michelle obama. more on them coming up. vice president biden is expected to be there thursday and the president later in the week. >> whatever i say here today, it's going to be at best, a distant second to the speech you will hear tonight from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. on t
class to hispanics and to women. the night's headliner michelle obama, she blew the roof off the place. >> at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. >> keynote speaker julian castro touched the crowd with his story of humble beginnings the first hispanic to deliver a keynote speech at the dnc. he talked up the president but delivered a punch to mitt romney. >> i don't think governor romney nent meant any marm. he has no idea how good he's had it. mitt romney quite simply doesn't get it. >> it was a democratic party so speakers served up a lot of red meat. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves. >> women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. maybe 23 cents doesn't sound like a lot to someone with a swiss bank account, a cayman island investment. >> put simply, women in america cannot trust mitt romney. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist for "washington post" and political reporter nick con sore ri. let's talk about michelle obama. it was called a resounding trium triumph. what do you think she ac
clinton and michelle obama far more than over the appearances by mitt and ann romney? >> the first lady of the united states not hitting a home run, but probably a grand slam. as far as what her mission was to do -- >> the master, bill clinton, delivered a masterpiece of a speech. truly a wonder. a rousing call to re-elect president obama. >> an electrifying endorsement of president obama from the former president -- >> a performance was amazing in the room, amazing on tv. >> reviews of president obama's speech not quite so positive. plus, some journalists are openly complaining, okay, maybe whining a bit, about the joyless and overly choreographed nature of this campaign. do they have a point? i'm howard kurtz, and this is "reliable sources." >>> it's rare in these days of polarized politics that most pundits agree on anything. when the democratic convention kicked off this week, there was plenty of praise for the soft-spoken and highly personal speech by michelle obama. >> michelle obama owned this convention, the delegates. >> i think that we may have forgotten how good michelle obam
dragged a chair onstage to conjure up an invisible president obama, michelle obama critiqued governor romney without mentioning his name, drawing sharp contrasts with her husband and creating a profile in negatives. >> barack's success isn't about how much money you make. it's about the difference you make in people's lives. we learned about honesty and integrity, that the truth matters, that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules. he's the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs. the issues that come across a president's desk are always the hard ones. the problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer. i have seen first-hand that being president doesn't change who you are. no, it reveals who you are. >> joining us now from charlotte, north carolina, is margaret carlson of bloomberg news. margaret, great to see you. before i get to you, i want to send a question over to our folks on set. senator bradley, someone who has in fact run for president, i want to ask you the question of michelle obama as a surrogate ha

in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right
